Manchester City hosts West Ham at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League late kick-off on Saturday.
Manchester City continued their good start to their Premier League with a last-gasp 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace last time out in the top-flight, with teenage substitute Kelechi Iheanacho scoring the winning goal in stoppage-time.
The Citizens are top of the league and four points clear of early surprise package Leicester, who are second. Manuel Pellegrini’s side are also a massive 11 points in front of reigning champions Chelsea, who have endured a torrid start to their top-flight campaign.
West Ham will head into this game with big confidence after recording a 2-0 home victory over Newcastle on Monday night. French playmaker Dmitri Payet scored as brace to hand the Irons their first home win of the season.
The odds seem against Bilic’s side winning at the Etihad Stadium, but in their two away games so far this season the side from East London have won 2-0 at Arsenal and 3-0 at Liverpool, City beware!

Manchester City vs West Ham Prediction

Manchester City have enjoyed an imperious start to their Premier League campaign. They look strong and I think they will win this game.
The visitors are in decent form this season and Slaven Bilic has them playing some good attacking football, but I think the Citizens will just about have too much quality for the Hammers on this occasion.
Manchester City to beat West Ham odds are 2/9 with Hills.
